The rooster isn't just another pretty beak... he actually holds a special place in the hearts of many in varying cultures. The Spanish, for example believe that a rooster crowing at sunset foretells bad weather and that you should never kill a white rooster as they bring good luck. They also believe that roosters are associated with the sun and protect humankind. The Japanese, on the other hand, believe that the rooster is a sacred animal. They're allowed to roam freely and enter Shinto Temples where it gives the morning call to the goddess Amaterasu. Also respected for its fighting ability, the rooster is revered as a symbol of courage. Here in the States, we have a more practical use for these showy creatures. In addition to his assistance in growing America's egg industry, it is also the rooster's instinct to protect its hens and other livestock from harmful predators. And then there's the fact that he's plain handsome!
